December 21, 2021

 

Sevensense introduces the new Alphasense Position, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with positioning technologies. Redesigned inside and outside, this model introduces the most advanced positioning solution for robotics OEMs. Using cutting-edge Visual-SLAM technology, Alphasense Position provides full 3D localization for any kind of ground vehicle, overcoming positioning challenges even in the toughest environments, and making it an unbeatable choice. 

‍Delivering breakthrough positioning technology that will ensure full 3D positioning in every environment

Alphasense Position is a complete multi-camera positioning system for mobile robots. It allows the installation of 4 to 8 cameras at customizable positions to ensure that the robot has a full 360° view at all times. Alphasense Position is available in two configurations: Compact and Extended. The Compact version allows to place the cameras in a sensor head to minimize the occupied space, while the Extended version allows for the optimal configuration and independent camera placement, through a maximum length of cables of 4.5 meters.

Navigation everywhere

Thanks to our cutting-edge Visual SLAM technology, Alphasense Position will provide highly robust and accurate 3D positioning for any kind of ground vehicle that can be initialized anywhere in the mapped environment. With that, it ensures reliable positioning, also in challenging environments; in- and outdoors, over uneven floors or ramps, with centimeter-level accuracy, and without auxiliary infrastructure. Dynamic environments, such as warehouses or areas around people, are also not a problem for our system. Ensuring the highest safety precautions, it simply detects the obstacles and keeps the map continuously up to date. Ultimately, Alphasense Position will ensure that your vehicle is able to localize everywhere and never gets lost again.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
